tDCS in creativity research

tDCS in creativity research

Time: 24th November, 11:30 am - 1:45 pm

Place: University of Warsaw Biological and Chemical Research Centre

Number of Participants: max. 30

Trainers: Caroline Di Bernardi Luft, PhD (Queen Mary University, London)




During this workshop participants will acquire basic knowledge about transcranial current brain stimulation (tCS) and its effects on brain responses during rest and task. This non-invasive brain stimulation techniques have been used not only to improve cognitive function but also to test the casual role of certain cortical brain areas and oscillations on cognition. Participants will get to know the latest research in the area and learn implication/differences of the effects of transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) and transcranial alternating current stimulation (tACS). After the workshop participants will be able to understand basic methodology of tCS studies while reading scientific articles in this area.

Caroline Di Bernardi Luft (Queen Mary University, London) obtained her PhD from Federal University of Santa Catarina (Brasil) and then her postdoctoral fellowships at University of Birmingham (United Kingdom) and Goldsmiths (United Kingdom). By making use of state-of-the-art analysis methods of neuroimaging (EEG, fMRI), non-invasive brain stimulation, and brain computer interfaces (BCI), her research pursues a better understand of learning and creativity.
